The Ad reads: "Its here, what you've been wanting for years, the fall and winter cloth coat designed according to the same philosophy that guides the creators of fur coats, ie, luxury in simple lines that are adaptable for wear at any hour of the day or night with any type of dress. Its a terrific idea, sponsored by Lilli Ann of San Francisco, the coat and suit house whose fame has spread from the Pacific Coast to Paris and London. Adolph Schuman, the guiding spirit of Lilli Ann is known everywhere on earth where the luxury makings of fashion are to be found. Decorated with its highest honors in the reestablishment of the great fabric mills of France after the war, Mr. Schuman has ready access to the finist French woolens, the thrilling new weaves and designs, the luxury fabrics that are in themselves are as elegant as fur. The new Lilli Ann collection for fall and winter 1963-1964 is particularly noteworthy, including from Paris sumptuous mohair tweeds with a hand woven look in a terrific color melange. Furs in this collection are the choicest pelts from the fur markets of the world, with particular emphasis on magnificent Scandinavian foxes, rich minks even sables. The silhouette is graceful and luxurious in coats as well as suits and the temptation to snuggle is as strong as the desire to feel the heavenly softness of these dream fabric.
The color story is fascinating red, greens, turquoise, amethyst all mixed on the palettes of the great artists of Paris with tremendous eclat.
